About us

Founded in 1973, VARA is the largest vintage car racing member organization on the West Coast. Race fields are made up of production and sports cars through 1979, with a focus on fun and competitive, contact-free racing.




The primary objective of the sport of vintage and historic automobile racing is to promote the preservation of these cars in a racing format that emphasizes safety. VARA race fields are made up of Sports Cars, Sports Racers, Formula Cars from the post WWII period through the early 1970s, and select race car classes a few cars from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s.


Membership in VARA is available to racers and racing enthusiasts. Events are family oriented, with many husband/wife teams and second generation racers filling the fields. You can be a racing driver, Join VARA Today!
